Best Historical Materials Committee

Purpose

The Committee seeks to improve the usefulness of bibliographies and indexes in the field of history. Each year the Committee compiles and publishes its “Best Historical Materials” in Reference and User Services Quarterly (RUSQ), RUSA's research journal. In addition, the Committee evaluates the pattern and effectiveness of coverage in all fields of history, promotes enhanced availability of historical works and information, and serves as liaison among bibliographers, indexers, publishers, and professional associations.

The Committee was formerly known as the Bibliographies and Indexes Committee.
